Hello my fellow crafters. This card was born after I checked the LIM blog on Saturday. I found this set of stamps stashed away with some promarkers when i was colouring another card. The stamps are by Butterfly Kisses and distributed by Hobby Art.
This is a one layer card. I stamped the sentiment in black archival ink and then masked the 'est wishes' with drawing gum. Then I used Tim Holtz stencils and inked through them with distress inks. Considering the theme I had to use my favourite one: spalts.
Then I sponged gilding paste through the chevron stencil and painted the swirls with the same paste. Once dry and tacky I added gilding flakes. I am becoming addicted to this paste and am using it everywhere.
Finally I stamped the branch in black archival and clear emossed it.
All that was left to do was to rub the gum off and that left the sentimant clear. I then painted it with clear wink of stella but this is really difficult to photograph.
What do you think? Theresa xx
